Our garden seems to be growing! We can already smell the basil (the big green and purplish plans) and the chives. The only one that hasn’t grown too much yet is the parsley (that’s still domed). I can’t wait to harvest though, because every now and then I get wafts of wonderful herb goodness.
It’s also evident that spring has sprung here. Everywhere trees are full of beautiful blossoms (whites and pinks and reds and yellows), tulips edge lawns all over the city, and it has rained most days a little bit, despite being in the 60s and 70s. Wes and I have recently decided to exercise together (he gets the credit for the idea, and for pushing me to do it) so now we go walking together a few times a week. Our complex is right next to a golf course and a pretty park area and there are some 15+ miles of walking paths. So far we’ve only conquered about 1.5 miles of it (that’s a good 3 mile walk out and back), and it’s really peaceful wandering among trees and lawns and furry little creatures, even if there are adjacent homes and golf carts sometimes. There’s a pond and several ducks right near our house, a creek that runs through the area and tons to see and photograph (especially for practice!) All that makes the exercise go quickly. What more could I ask for?
